I"m trying to configure Xemacs 21.4.15 on a Solaris 8 workstation.  I compiled the software by running the .configure, make install, and make all.

The software looks like it compiled fine.  When I start xemac's, I try to do anything with Xemacs I'm getting this error, "Symbol's function definition is void: make-annotation".  Anyone have any idea how to fix this error?

You're missing the annotations library, which is included in the xemacs-base package.
You also probably want to install many other packages.  See README.packages and the
etc/PACKAGES file.

It might be easier to trust an already compiled/packaged xemacs :
